Description

If you could be the first to lay eyes upon a planet orbiting a distant star, would you go?

If it meant that when you returned home - if you returned home - everyone you knew would have been dead for centuries, would you still go?

The members of the Polaris Project knew what they were giving up when they volunteered to fly to the star named Angel-21, but the allure of being the first explorers to leave the Solar System far outweighed the risks. As it turned out, the most dangerous thing they faced wasn't the mission...it was the homecoming. Eight hundred years have passed, and Earth is nothing like they thought it would be.

As Commander Markus Brentwood scrambles to uncover the mystery of what's happened to Earth in their absence, he also must contend with an increasingly dysfunctional crew and a damaged ship that's flying on borrowed time. What should have been a joyous return home after a long, hard mission has turned into a race to see which nightmare would kill them first.

An exploration of humanity's dark side

Let me start by saying that I am an inveterate Joshua Dalzelle fan. He has a wonderful way of introducing me to characters whom I like, can often identify with, and who make me feel like I am maybe a little better person after getting to know them. THE BLACKFLEET TRILOGY, THE EXPANSION WARS TRILOGY, the entire OMEGA FORCE SERIES -- they are all full of characters you can develop a real kinship with.

I did NOT find this to be the case with BLUESHIFT. While some may feel the examination of group dynamics when put in the unique circumstances found in BLUESHIFT to be a worthwhile endeavor, I did not. The brutal and dark side of human behavior which kept emerging as the story progressed was not how I like devote my mental real estate. Realistic, one might ask? Very possibly. Reality notwithstanding, this was one novel I could have done without.

Paul Heitsch gives his usual stellar interpretation of the characters. He is a marvel, and a joy to listen to.

Not my cup of tea.

I wanted more interaction between the crew and the humans who had continued to advance in the intervening 800 years. Instead we spend most of the time dealing with feral humans.

I found myself asking "why" a lot. Why were narcissists and psychopaths allowed on board? What was so important about the drives carrying the "history of mankind?" In the end the question became "what's the point?" This could have been really good if the author had stuck with one plot.

I'm just disappointed. I usually enjoy this author's work. I will continue reading his work.

Very solid 4.5 stars

Part science fiction and part thriller this novel is a solid 4.5 stars. The characters are interesting. The story is compelling. I enjoyed the narrator. Overall very well done. Will there be a sequel? I don’t know. If there is I will certainly buy it.

Loose Ends

The story was well done however I wish there was a bit less whining. I know these were civilians but really...get over it. Once they got on Earth conversation got a little more bearable. Other than that the story was very original. Unfortonately there were some loose ends at the conclusion of the story so I hope there will be a follow up.

Survival!

Some readers/reviewers did not survive Joshua Dalzelle's excellent tale of isolation and survival. It was not, after all, Omega Force or the intrepid Black Fleet. Right, but it was not supposed to be. Mr. Dalzelle stretches his wings in another sci-fi direction and I for one say, "Huzzah!" Seriously. This is a superb and very well written tale, the theme of which is touched on by a few sci-fi motion pictures of the last few years but not nearly with this kind of gut-wrenching "Oh no!" outcome. Will there be Blueshift #2? One can hope!

Never once got boring

Joshua Dalzelle and Paul Heitsch together can do no wrong, if you are an OF geek like me there is no not reading (listening to) this book. I like to think of it as Captain Burke in an alternate reality 🤷🏿‍♂️
